3 Smart Luggage Brands That Airlines Won’t Turn Away

Smart luggage has been an excellent addition for consumers but has caused quite a bit of controversy in the travel world. Some airlines have banned smart luggage with lithium-ion batteries that are unable to be removed. You might be asking what the big deal is about these type of batteries?
Well, if one of the batteries is punctured, it can explode inside the overhead bins or underneath the plane, sparking a fire. A few innovators in the smart luggage industry have shuttered their doors while other companies have taken the ban in stride, creating luggage that is not only well-designed but also makes things more convenient for frequent fliers everywhere.

Away The Bigger Carry

Many millenials know about this startup company thanks to its minimalist advertising on social media, but the company backs up its advertising. This is a product travelers love thanks to its pricing, removable battery, and an ejectable battery that charges your phone quickly. If you’re into personalizing your bags, you can have your initials monogrammed on your bag by an artist that paints them by hand.

Arlo Skye The Polycarbonate Carry-On

This lightweight, zipper-less, anti-microbial interior lined carry-on is designed with “an unbreakable polycarbonate shell” paired with an aluminum frame. Like its smart luggage counterparts, this bag is airline-approved. It also boasts a removable battery that can give an iPhone and MacBook the juice without searching for a plug at your gate.

G-RO Carry-On Classic

What stands out most about this design is its oversized wheels. No more tipping luggage as you try to navigate the bumpy streets of your next destination. Aside from that feature, the suitcase is equipped with a portable charging station with two USB ports, and its internal design makes it easy to stay organized, thanks to its multiple compartments and pockets to store your belongings.
